SF – Shoplifter Signing

cho-kiddMichael Cho appears in conversation with Chip Kidd at the JCCSF on Tuesday September 30th at 8:00 pM!

Press Release:

Illustrator and cartoonist Michael Cho, whose work has graced covers for Marvel and DC Comics, tackles the search for self-fulfillment in the big city in his brilliant debut graphic novel Shoplifter. His style evokes in equal measure the pop art of Roy Lichtenstein and aesthetics of Silver- and Bronze-Age superhero comics. Cho’s previously published work includes Back Alleys and Urban Landscapes, a collection of sketches depicting Toronto’s cityscape. He created the illustrations for Rabindranath Maharaj’s The Amazing Absorbing Boy and is well known for his offbeat illustrations of superheroes. One of his stories was included in The Best American Comics 2010.

He is joined in conversation by Chip Kidd, four-time Eisner Award-winning designer and author of Batman: Animated, Peanuts: The Art of Charles M. Schultz, and Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross. As an editor of graphic novels for Pantheon Books, he has worked with some of the very best talents in the medium, including Chris Ware, Dan Clowes, Art Spiegelman, Charles Burns, and David Mazzucchelli. Kidd is also the recipient of the National Design Award for Communications, the Design industry’s highest honor.

perez-sirens1

Press Release:

Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is excited to announce that comics’ legend George Pérez will be embarking on his first nationwide signing tour to promote his new original series, George Pérez’s Sirens. Pérez will be visiting six different comic shops and three conventions in seven states across the country to meet fans and sign copies of his first original comic book series in over a decade. Appearing alongside the luminary creator at several of the events will be the real-life friends and fans who inspired the Sirens themselves.

As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy—but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are? And the rest of the universe only remembers them as…villains? A six-issue bi-monthly miniseries featuring your new favorite comic book team, written and drawn by the master himself, George Pérez (Wonder Woman, JLA Vs. Avengers) begins his greatest story yet.

“This is gonna be so much fun,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “George has never gone on a signing tour before, so this a really unique opportunity for his fan base. Spanning the course of two full weeks, George will be visiting numerous comic shops and conventions, meeting fans from all over the country, and introducing them to his newest work, Sirens. A huge thanks goes out to all the retailers and convention organizers that made this possible. And of course, the biggest thanks of all goes out to George for agreeing to pack up and travel all over the U.S.!”
